article imageUkraine flu turns into black lung epidemic, kills 12 in one day

By Andrew Moran     Nov 22, 2009 in Health
Over the last month, only a handful of news outlets have reported on the recent health crisis occurring in Ukraine, which has now infected.4 million people with the mysterious influenza and now three viruses have mutated into a plague.
Earlier this month, Digital Journal reported that three quarters (480,000) of the Ukrainian population contracted the mysterious virus but recent reports suggest that 1.4 million have received the unknown influenza, according to The Business Insider.
Ukrainian scientists are concerned that the virus, which some believe to be the swine flu, may have mutated because doctors are finding their patients experiencing a burning sensation and blackened lungs, states National Terror Alert.
One doctor said, according to the Daily Express, “We have carried out post mortems on two victims and found their lungs are as black as charcoal. They look like they have been burned. It’s terrifying.”
The death toll by the influenza strain is at 328 and on Wednesday 12 people died in a period of 24 hours. Ukraine fears that it may potentially spread to neighboring nations and create a full continental epidemic. Countries such as Russi and Poland have launched health checks on Ukrainians entering their country. The government is searching frantically to find $125 million to combat the disease.
President Viktor Yuschenko stated in a television interview, “People are dying. The epidemic is killing doctors. This is absolutely inconceivable in the 21st Century. Unlike similar epidemics in other countries, three causes of serious viral infections came together simultaneously in Ukraine – two seasonal flus and the Californian flu. “We have sent the analyses to Kiev. We don’t believe it’s H1N1 swine flu. Neither do we know what kind of pneumonia it is.”
As Russia Today notes, Vladimir Putin has ordered Russia’s Ministry of Health and Social Development to provide humanitarian aid in the form of $800,000 to buy medication. It further adds that 22 other countries have sent aid to the eastern European country.
There have been several theories floating around Ukraine and across the globe. One of them being that a low-level aircraft sprayed different regions of the country and Australia TO reports that there has been no scientific proof that the deaths or diseases have been related to H1N1 Influenza A.
Another theory is that pharmaceutical company, Baxter International, is plotting to spread a plague from Baxter’s Ukrainian laboratory. This possibility came from bio-scientist, Joseph Moshe, who worked within Mossad and has dual citizenship within the United States and Israel. He contacted a radio show warning people and later he was arrested by the LAPD/SWAT, FBI and the Secret Service. The trio pepper-sprayed the man and sent him to a California mental hospital.
Wayne Madsen, an investigative reporter told Russia Today, “It should be called a Jurassic Flu – the DNA of a woman who died in 1918 Spanish flu was recovered from her corpse. The DNA was used to recreate this virus and some of the individuals, especially of the University of Wisconsin, Madison, are now involved in a process to develop the vaccine for H1N1. I don’t think it takes a detective very much time to figure out what could be a ‘cause and effect’ relationship there.”
